Welcome to the Nick Virgilio Haiku Association
To inspire lifelong learning of poetry and strengthen our communities in the literary arts.
The winners of the 2018 Nicholas A. Virgilio Haiku & Senryu Competition have been announced! More than 4,000 students from across the globe submitted poems this year You can read more about the winning entries here.
The Nick Virgilio Writers House is nearly ready to open, and we are committed to raising money for programming at the house. (And seeking a few other kinds of donations such as stacking classroom chairs suitable for students and visitors to our programs).
Will you donate $25, $50, $100? It would make a real difference!
